Letter to the family

Dear family,
My name is Patricia and I'm 27 years old. I am Brazilian and currently studying medicine in university.
Before passing the entrance exam, I had the opportunity to take care of my nephew and cousins- I always loved children and always considered the possibility of being an au pair. I think this is a great chance because it gives me the possibility to learn a new culture, language and do something that I really enjoy, all at the same time. At this moment, during the pandemic, my university is closed and for that reason I believe that it is finally time for me to do this program. I have a huge dream of working with Doctors Without Border (MSF), so I want to take this opportunity to work on skills that I believe are important such as: resilience and courage. Additionally, I would like to help you and become a part of your culture and your family. I have no problem helping with household chores and making food for the children.
During my stay at the university I lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. There, I was responsible for managing an apartment for international students. I accepted this job because I understood that it would be a wonderful opportunity to meet people from other countries and cultures, and also to grow as a person. Until now, I have had no communication problems with anyone. I study english every day to improve my vocabulary and speaking skills. My main problem with English is the pronunciation. I can understand easily when someone speaks English with me but I have some difficulties to speak well. I believe that the au pair experience will help me to develop my speaking skills. I am now in the United Kingdom taking an English course that will last until December 15. After that date I would be available to help you with your family.

Experience

For two years I worked as a monitor for kids parties.
I took care of my nephew for the whole year of his life.
I also took care of another nephew who is 6 years old, so that my sister could go to work.

Before I went to medical school, I did nursing . and cared for the elderly in hospitals and asylums. after I started medical school I had contact with care for the elderly in the hospitals I study, I like very much to deal with these two phases of life children and elderly.
